Sesame Shrimp Stir Fry

The Complete Herbal Guide / Healthy Recipes  / Sesame Shrimp Stir Fry

Sesame Shrimp Stir Fry


  • 8-10 wild caught shrimp, deveined, shells, and tails removed, set aside
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced into thin wedges
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 2 carrots, sliced into matchsticks
  • 2 cups shredded cabbage or slaw mix
  • 1/2 cup soaked wakame
  • 1/2 cup sliced water chestnuts
  • Use 1 medium green heirloom tomato, cut into chunks
  • One lime, for juice and 2 serving wedges
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil
  • 2-3 tablespoons roasted sesame tahini
  • 2/3 cup hot light vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1-2 teaspoons raw organic agave nectar
  • 4 servings rice, prepared
  • hot pepper or pepper flakes, minced onion, garlic, or ginger, to taste
  • sea salt, to taste


  1. Using a fork, blend the sesame tahini and oil in a glass measuring cup. Add the hot broth and stir to thin. Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Taste test. Does it need a little heat? Sweetness? More tahini? Salt?
  2. Prepare your wok with a little oil; set on medium-high heat.
  3. Add the onion to the wok and stir till softened. Add the garlic, carrots, and cabbage; season with sea salt and stir.
  4. When the cabbage has melted a bit, add the prepared shrimp, wakame, water chestnuts, and green tomato. Stir.
  5. When the shrimp have just turned pink, add the sesame stir-fry sauce and stir to combine. Bring to a simmer and cook briefly until heated through (shrimp should be firm and opaque). Squeeze half a lime over the stir-fry and stir.
  6. Serve over rice. Garnish with a wedge of fresh lime.
